Introduction to Civil Engineering

Diploma Civil Engineering is three year program and the course deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of structures and works like bridges, tunnels, canals, buildings, airports, water works, sewage systems, highways & rail-roads, water-ways & canals, dams & power houses, water treatment & sewage disposal system, ports, docks & harbours, etc while protecting the public and environmental health, as well as improving the existing infrastructures. Diploma in Civil Engineering makes a student well capable and responsible for planning and designing a project, constructing the project to the required scale, and maintenance of the project.

Diploma in Civil Engineering Course Suitability

Those who have creativity and an innovative approach to solving problems; the ability to analyse and interpret diverse, complex data; critical thinking and the ability to evaluate designs, plans and projects; effective assessment and management of risk, resources and time are the most suitable ones for it.

Second, who have highly developed numeracy and computer literacy; interpersonal sensitivity, persuasiveness and the ability to work as part of a team; clear written and oral communication skills; awareness of ethical issues and the wider impact of your work.

Candidates willing of having Bachelore & Master degree and then for further research work also are good match for it.

How is Diploma in Civil Engineering Course Beneficial?

Acquiring the Diploma in Civil Engineering equips a student not only with a sound engineering knowledge but also very good supervisory and administrative skills.

As there will always be the requirement of construction of new building structures so the civil engineers will always be needed to construct those and also maintain and repair existing facilities and structures. So the demand for a civil engineer is never ending.

A Diploma in Civil Engineering always offers immense scope and opportunity. There are tremendous job opportunities with municipal corporations, rail, road and airport construction companies, development companies, water supply department, defence forces and other infrastructure related industries.

Civil engineers are employed in all the major construction projects carried out by the state or central government, the railways, private construction companies, military, engineering services, consultancy services etc.
